    Sanu mama it’s been a year we have missed your voice and gentle chuckle when we speak over the phone. You are dearly missed but present in our thoughts especially at this first remembrance. Rest in the presence of our Lord.

    With her great heart Mama embraced all and sundry. We had great times when she visited Nairobi and we dined together at the Odubekun’s. We were immediately adopted and honored to remember her with fond memories. Lola kept us up to date on all the fun. The Sagnias

      Omolola Odubekun Remember how we got VIP seats because someone from the Emir's Palace ecognized Mum (she had delivered a number of babies there) and said she had to get the best seating as a result! "Ah, Sanu Matron! Rankishidade!"

      Omolola Odubekun ???? I believe Babz was also just getting over the measles at the time. Hence the 'dots' on his face! Tobi's just wondering what all the fuss is about turning "ONE."

    Sanu Mama. The past year hasn't been the same without you, but I know that there is 'no love without pain.' The only way to heal the pain is to love. You loved everyone as your own. A fantastic legacy..Rest In Peace.

    A great mother she was! I'm glad our paths crossed in our sojourn here on earth. The mother and son love we shared here leaves me in no doubt that we'll share it more perpetually there in heaven when the time comes. Rest on cheerful Mama!
